    Am off school at the moment, due to a broken collar bone, and one of my mates had to cover a lesson for me today, and some pupils came up to him in the lesson and said, 'we've heard Mr Robinson's tuba fell on him, that's why he's off!'

    Seriously considering working round this when I get back. Picture the scene, walking down Chesterfield High Street playing Slaidburn or Death or Glory, and trip over your bass landing on top of it, breaking your collar bone and not doing the tuba a lot of good either, but luckily it was insured. Much better than the real tripped over my desk at home and bumped into the bookshelf.

    Ouch that must have smarted somewhat? You must have delicate bones or one humongous great book shelf! There will be some government busybody (sorry I meant Health and Safety) warning us on storing excessive amounts of reading material in our homes now...

    Hope you feel better soon though. X

    Am entirely intrigued as to how you managed to fall over a desk.... :confused:

    Are u freakishly tall or is your desk of the japanese coffee table style?:lol:

    Sounds painful regardless but the mental picture of someone falling over a desk is drawing a blank......;)

    Well if you'd ever met Daniel the answer to both your questions would become immediately apparent - I believe there is a video of him dancing on Youtube which may be of assistance - I'll see if I can find it for you.
